Rated 5 out of 5┬áby NashvilleCat Soooo soft and comfy!!
I am obsessed with this jacket. I've had it on since it arrived. It is so soft, and so comfortable, and SO well made. The fabric has a very, very faint pinstripe, which gives it additional visual interest. The buttons and the zipper are brighter (coppery gold) than they appear in the pic. You can just tell by looking it is a very expensive piece. I am so excited to wear it over maxi dresses, and with collared shirts and mini skirts. OH - and for the reviewer who thought the pocket was false... good news! They are simply "factory sealed" like many suit jackets. There is one thin thread holding the pockets closed, which you remove, and then you've got fully functioning pockets on both sides. :)

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby HGLA slightly disappointed, no pocket on right side
I loved the feel of this jacket. It's soft and personally I'm a fan of 3/4 sleeves which make the jacket less bulky. I am usually a 4-6 in tops and the small fit me great. But boy was I disappointed to realize that the right pocket is a false pocket. The left is a true pocket, but for me the jacket was just not comfortable to wear when I could only use one pocket. I would have been disappointed with this style "flaw" at half the price, but at almost 400$ it took me only a few seconds to realize that this was just not worth it for me.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby MamanDesTrois Love this jacket!
I had been watching this jacket on more than one website and practically did cartwheels when I saw it on sale at Anthro. It's the perfect weight for summer when it's hot out but everywhere indoors is overly air conditioned. It's slightly heavier than a men's oxford cloth shirt. Love the three quarter sleeves. I frequently wear layered bracelets, and I like that you can see them without having to push the jacket sleeves up. In the winter, it'll look cute with long sleeves showing.
In response to the review that said that one of the pockets was a false pocket, not true! The pockets were simply stitched closed like pockets frequently are with new garments. I removed the stitching on both sides, and was please to find that both pockets are deep and roomy.
